Partly cloudy to mostly cloudy skies will be with us tonight. Lows, under the clearest skies, will drop into the low 30s and could possibly fall into the 20s. Another area of low pressure will move through the Great Lakes Friday and keep mainly cloudy and cool conditions in place. There could be some periods of sunshine east of Binghamton. Most of the day should be dry for Binghamton and places east. I am keeping a slight chance of late day showers toward the Finger Lakes as the low pressure moves closer to us. The chance of rain is 30%. Highs will be in the mid and upper 40s, possibly hitting 50 with any sunshine. Overnight lows will be around 37.
Saturday and Sunday will be unseasonably chilly and both days will be windy. The chance of a few showers Saturday is around 30% but at this time, it looks like most of the day will be dry. The best chance of precipitation looks to be toward the Catskills and Finger Lakes. A strong nor’easter will develop off the eastern seaboard Saturday night into Sunday, but it will be far enough away from us to keep any significant winter impacts well away from us. As colder air gets drawn in behind the storm Saturday night, there could be some lake effect/lake enhanced snow showers across the Twin Tiers and especially the Finger Lakes region. At this point, the chance of any snowfall accumulations looks low. I will continue to monitor this situation. Expect highs Saturday in the low 40s with overnight lows in the 20s. Winds could gust to 25mph later in the day. Sunday will be colder and still windy. Gusts could reach as high as 30-35mph. Highs will be in the mid and upper 30s, but the wind chill will make it feel like the 20s. Clouds will be with us through most the afternoon, but as high pressure builds in later in the day slow clearing should take over from west to east and lead to a mostly sunny Monday. Highs will rebound to the mid and upper 40s Monday. Clouds are expected Tuesday and Wednesday and highs will climb back into the 50s. A slight chance of showers is expected Wednesday.
Change your clocks BACK one hour Saturday night before bed. Daylight Saving Time ends at 2am Sunday. Also please remember to change the batteries in smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
